  • establish links with relevant state, national and international groups in order to monitor trends in relation to education access across the lifecycle of general practice and to incorporate suitable innovations into RACGP programs, as directed, and
  • increase the RACGP’s educational profile and of general practice via a range of mechanisms, with a particular emphasis on pre Fellowship education and training.
